• Used for the sequential control of a variety of engineering
machines and belt conveyor lines.
• Built-in oil filter shuts out oil and water.
• Approved by EN, IEC (Ground terminal models only.) and
CCC (Chinese standard). Ask your OMRON representative
for information on approved models.
• Ground terminal models bear the CE mark.
Be sure to read the “Safety Precautions” on page 4
and the “Precautions for All Limit Switches”.

Safety Precautions
Refer to Safety Precautions for All Limit Switches.
Precautions for Safe Use
Connection
• Be sure to connect a fuse with a breaking current 1.5 to 2 times
larger than the rated current to the Switch in series in order to
protect the Switch from damage due to short-circuiting.
• If the VB is used for EN ratings, use a gI or gG 10-A fuse approved
by IEC269.
Operation
Make sure the notch of the plunger is not pressed into the scraper
when operating the VB Multiple Limit Switch, otherwise chips or dust
may penetrate into the VB Multiple Limit Switch.
3. Apply a torque of 5.88 to 6.86 N·m to tighten each mounting bolt
of the casing if the mounting bolt is an Allen-head bolt that is M6 in
size. Apply a torque of 8.04 to 9.22 N·m instead if the mounting bolt
is an Allen-head bolt that is M8 in size.

Sealing
• The switch box and cover are made of die-cast aluminum and the
mounting part of the Switch is covered with a seal cap, and ensure
a sealing performance of more than 98×103 Pa for the VB Multiple
Limit Switch.
The filter on the side of the head prevents oil and water from
penetrating into the interior of the VB Multiple Limit Switch while
preventing the internal pressure of the VB Multiple Limit Switch
from rising when the plunger is pressed.
The seal scraper on the tip of the actuator prevents chips and dust
from penetrating into the moving parts of the VB Multiple Limit
Switch.

• Apply extra tightening to the cap screw on the conduit.
• In order to protect the plunger from abrasion and prolong its
service life, apply a small amount of grease to the plunger and dog
or cam that come into contact with the plunger. (Molybdenum
disulfide grease is recommended.)

Appropriate Tightening Torque
1. Tighten each cover mounting screw to a torque of 1.18 to

2. Tighten each switch terminal screw to a torque of 0.19 to 0.29 N·m
if the mounting screw is M3 in size.

Consult your OMRON representative for details on models with 3 to 6
plungers.
Others
• Carefully connect a conduit to each conduit hole and apply a seal
or tape to seal the conduit hole so that cuttings or other materials
will not penetrate through the conduit hole.
• Use the SC Connector. Consult your OMRON representative for
details on SC Connectors.
• Make sure that the position of the actuator that is traveling does not
exceed the overtravel (OT) position. Make sure that the operating
stroke is 70% to 100% of the specified OT distance.
Be sure to wire each solderless terminal correctly with a screw as
shown below.
